I don't use sunscreen, though mom sent me one: Rahul Gandhi talks with Yatristext_fields
New Delhi: A cross country walk is easier said than done, considering the landmass one has to tread all along from one end of the nation to the other.
Rahul Gandhi is pulling off what many others would never dare to give a thought even in their wildest imagination.
Critics keep asking all the same, after all what difference the march will make to a party that is falling apart.
Bharat Jodo Yatra marked its 40th day, hitting Karnataka's Ballari and there are still miles to go before they reach Jammu and Kashmir.
Amid talking politics at receptions, Rahul Gandhi on Monday let his hair down sharing lighter moments with his fellow travellers.
One of the questions he took from them was about what Sunscreen he was using.
Rahul Gandhi said he wouldn't use the sunscreen his Mom sent him but a man cut in saying Rahul Gandhi's face was "sunshine. It shines."
Gandhi segued the conversation back to politics saying that the BJP is under wrong perception that India will become silent as they capture all institutions.
India will never be silent but fight, he added, according to India Today.
Bharat Jodo Yatra was started on September 7 from Kanyakumari to cover 3,570-km before reaching Jammu and Kashmir.
The Congress leadership pins on the march its hopes for improving odds of winning 2024 Lok Sabha polls.
The political campaign, which will take around 150 days to complete, is by far the longest march on foot by any Indian politician.
